Master the Art of Traveling With Only a Carry-On Bag

Apr 26, 2008
If you are wanting to travel light then give some thought to using just one carry-on bag. No longer will you be waiting in those long line to check your luggage in or waiting for your bags to show up on the luggage carousel. Instead, you jump straight on and off your plane without worrying about whether your bags will end up in a random country with you waiting for it back home.

And carry-on bags are not just for day or overnight travel. You can successfully travel for weeks with just one bag. In reality, provided you can wash your clothes, there is no difference in what you need when you travel for a week and when you travel for a month.

Not convinced? Check out the suggestion below on how to travel light and fast.

How to Travel Light With Carry-On Bags

1. Use a Small Carry-On Bag - this is for two main reasons. Firstly, you will be sure to meet the carry-on requirements of the airline. Secondly, it will force yourself to pack only what you really need.

2. Buy Small Items - when you are thinking about packing things such as tooth brushes, razors or hair dryers, make sure that you pack the smallest version that you can find. Many travel stores have "travel" versions of essential items.

3. Make 3 Piles - put everything you think you need into three groups. One group is for what you can't live with out, the second is for what would be handy and the third is what you really don't need. Now get rid of the second and third group.

4. What Clothes to pack - take with you five outfits that can be mix-and-matched. This way you will have dozens of outfits that you can ware. One word of warning about jeans. While they can be worn with almost anything, they can also become heavy when wet and are hard to dry.

5. What Shoes to Take - in reality, you only really need two pairs of shoes. Ones that you can wear for formal or work occasions, and another pair for casual events or long distance walking.

6. At the end of your trip go through each item that you packed and take some time to think about which items you can leave behind next time.
